Snoqualmie Tunnel – A Walk in the Dark

The Snoqualmie Tunnel is about 20 miles from my home and is a favorite place for hiking and biking.  This slideshow is from a morning hike with my friend, through and back in September 2012.

  1. Nice shots! Really interesting but looks kinda scary.


    • I thought I might get freaked out in the middle since the tunnel is over 2 miles long, but it turned out more unusual than scary. Since the tunnel is straight, you could see the tiny light at the other end almost right away, and it keeps you oriented. It was bizarre when hikers or bikers passed by, because you’d see their lights for a long time and then when they went by they were only vague figures and you never really saw them. I thought my photos managed to abstractly catch that feeling of vague shapes in the dark.

    I love this tunnel! We’ve biked it a few times, but never hiked it!
    Such a unique experience!
